The Gatlinburg SkyTrail is a scenic walkway that will connect each end of the SkyBridge and provide guests the opportunity to take a leisurely walk in the mountains.
Phase 1 of the SkyTrail, featuring an elevated boardwalk, will open later this fall. This quarter-mile roundtrip walkway will offer unique views of the SkyBridge and panoramic Smoky Mountain vistas. While exploring the boardwalk, interactive signage will provide information about the engineering of the SkyBridge, the history of iconic Gatlinburg SkyLift, and the wildfires of 2016 that swept across Crockett Mountain where the SkyTrail stands today.
Phase 2, opening later next spring, will feature elevated viewing platforms, rope bridges, and a smooth walking path cut into the natural hillside.
Once complete, the SkyTrail will be accessible from either side of the SkyBridge as an enjoyable experience for adults, kids and dogs as an easy one-third-mile walk.
